Fresh Brews: Beer Tattoos, Beer Waffles And More

Is it really already September? With temperatures still in the upper 90’s here in Florida, it still feels like summer. Hopefully, wherever you are it’s cooler or at least you have some good craft beer to cool you down.

I'm a former coffee blogger, but I’ve been getting to know some really good craft beers and really getting into home brewing. I couldn’t resist starting this little project called Passion For The Pint. When I’m not blogging about coffee or beer, you can find me exploring New Orleans’ wide range of eateries, rooting for the New York Yankees (don’t hate me, I’m originally from New York), working out to burn off the beer calories or reading about beer.
